The Olenik Vineyard is located in the Northern Willamette Valley and consists of volcanic and sedimentary soils. The elevation is 480 ft and covered with fractured basalt rock, ranging from pebbles to boulders.
The 2016 vintage was one of the earliest on record for Oregon due to a warm spring leading into even growing conditions until harvest. This resulted in fruit with great complexity, beautiful concentration of flavors and bright natural acidity. In short, a perfect vintage to express the terroir of the vineyard.
